Analysis Details


Fail Suspicious Reviewers

One-Hit Wonders


137 of the 574 reviewers have only reviewed this product. The One-Hit Wonders have rated this product an average of 4.7 while the reviewers who have posted more than one review have rated this product an average of 4.4. Based on our statistical modeling, the discrepancy in average rating between these two groups is significant enough to believe that the difference is not due to random chance, and may indicate that there are unnatural reviews.

Never-Verified Reviewers


223 of the 574 reviewers have never written a verified purchase review. The Never-Verified Reviewers have rated this product an average of 4.6 while the reviewers who have written at least one verified purchase review rated this product an average of 4.4. Based on our statistical modeling, the discrepancy in average rating between these two groups is significant enough to believe that the difference is not due to random chance, and may indicate that there are unnatural reviews.

Take-Back Reviewers


22 of the 574 reviewers have had at least one of their past reviews for another product deleted. While this is more Take-Back Reviewers than we'd expect to see, it does not appear to have a significant impact on the overall rating.

Single-Day Reviewers

Warn Rating Trend

  • Created over 13 days

We counted 574 reviews for this product over the span of 338 days, an average of 1.7 reviews per day. If these reviews were created randomly, there would be a 99.9% chance that we would see 7 or fewer reviews on any given day.

However, we see the following 13 days exceeding this threshold:In total, we found that 198 reviews were created on just 13 days. This is an excessively high number of reviews submitted on these high volume days.
